Peak District teenager David Cook was back at his Baslow home this week savouring the delights of his mum’s cooking and the luxury of his own bed after a five-month, 10,000-mile gruelling charity cycle-ride through most of Europe.

And as he relaxed with family and friends, the 19-year-old former Lady Manners School student admitted: "It's great to be home. It feels weird after living by the roadside for so long. My cooking on tour almost finished us off and living in a tent by the side of the road all those months has certainly taken away the novelty of camping but I've learned a lot about myself, other people and their cultures, the value of a supportive family - and the benefits of being English."
